Mike was raised in a Christian home and at a young age accepted Christ through the ministry of The Canadian Sunday School Mission while attending Bible Camp. Mike married his wife, Carla, in 1989 and they have 4 children. In 2001 his career in aviation brought the family to Thunder Bay. While Mike was away for work, Carla and the kids attended FWBC and were drawn to the preaching and Sunday school program. A short while later, Mike joined the family and appreciated the same things that Carla had shared about the teaching and fellowship. The next year Mike and Carla joined the church as covenant partners.
Mike enjoys football…both playing, coaching and watching. He and Carla also enjoy their time out at camp. Mike’s ministry focus over the years has been helping lead the Music Ministry as well as pre and post marital counselling with Carla. In addition to the bible, Mike’s Christian walk and service has been influenced over the years by the men’s ministry Promise keepers, as well as writings by Dan Allender (Bold Love), Henry Blackaby (Knowing God) and John Eldredge (Waking the Dead).
Like his other elder brothers, Mike’s desire is to be a servant leader who is tasked to make much of Christ….while striving to lead and teach as one who has nothing to gain but the glory that awaits.
